We are working with a practice based in Crawley, West Sussex that is looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join them on a permanent full or part-time basis. This role is for an experienced Vet to join our client in a Senior Vet position.

The Practice:

This is a fantastic chance to work with a well- respected team and an established client base. You will be joining a passionate team of 4 vets, 6 registered nurses, 2 student nurses, 2 veterinary care assistants, and 5 receptionists.

The practice is committed to bringing you affordable, high-quality care via a modern, well-equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray, and ultrasound. Plus, on-site car parking too and easy access to the M23 and M25 or you can catch direct trains from Crawley into London in under 40 minutes.

The Role and Candidate:

Our client is happy to consider a veterinary surgeon wanting full or part-time hours (min. 25 hours per week) with a weekend rota of 1 in 5 full weekends and 1 in 5 Saturdays. There is no OOHs and only occasional sole charge responsibility ensuring a lovely work/life balance.

Applicants will be confident with all routine surgical and medical cases and special interests will be welcomed and supported. A large element of the senior vet role will involve mentoring and supporting less experienced vets, helping them to develop to their full potential. The practice offers clinical freedom and the opportunity to work with a varied and loyal client base, working up cases to a high standard.

In return, our client is offering an excellent package that includes:

  • Competitive salary in line with experience
  • 1 in 5 weekend rota
  • Enhanced annual leave
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Generous CPD and funding of certificates
